“Luxury, friendly hideaway”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Tucked away in the beautiful and peaceful countryside of Ceridigion is this wonderful B&B. The suite (bedroom, bathroom, separate sitting room & private patio) was beautifully appointed with everything you could need during your stay including kettle, coffee maker, plates/cutlery if you fancy a snack meal in, well stocked mini bar fridge, tv/dvd player. The suite was immaculately clean as is the whole establishment. The breakfast room is modern yet rustic in a converted, characterful building with a lovely fire place and breakfast was delicious, plentiful & used a lot of local produce. The Penbontbren is wonderfully peaceful. In addition to all of these positives, there is no doubt that the real secret to this establishment's success are the owners Richard and Huw (and their staff) who welcomed us warmly from the minute we arrived and provided very helpful local knowledge and suggestions for places to visit and eat. We did not want to leave & hope to go back before too long !

My wife and I spent three nights at Penbontbren in October. Over the years we have visited some outstanding Bed & Breakfast establishments, but Penbontbren has got to be the best. We were made to feel like personal friends by the proprietors, who couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. An absolute gem of a place which we would recommend to others with out hesitation.

We have just returned from a two night break at Penbontbren, and enjoyed every minute of our stay.

We had a lovely warm welcome on arrival, and were really impressed with our beautifully decorated suite. The separate seating and television television were another treat.

Breakfast was lovely and tasty, and we were given handy suggestions of places to visit and go for lunch in the day.

Thank you Richard and Huw : )

Penbontbren is set in a tranquil location in very rural Cardiganshire, just right for walking especially if you have a dog. On arrival we received a generous welcome from mine host and it was evident from the start that all our needs would be met including those for the dog and a 16 month old granddaughter. The accommodation was comfortable, well appointed with great attention to detail. A hearty breakfast was on offer to start the day.

Beautiful, setting, off the beaten track in stunning countryside. Access is alomg a single track road which is all part of tyhe discovery experience. The accommodation is finished to a high standard and tastefully decorated. We shared the two bedroom, bathroom & sitting room suite and it was very comfortable. Richard & Huw could not have been more welcoming and helpful, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them.
I rate this place and cannot recommend it too highly!

Room Tip: We were a party of six and everyone was happy with their room, if you prefer a bath to a shower, as...

We spent 2 nights in a beautiful suite with our 2 young grandsons - I just wish it had been available for longer. The suite comprised a large bedroom with a very comfortable super king-size bed, a smaller twin bedroom for the boys , a large very tastefully decorated sitting area with a very comfortable 3 piece suite, a spotlessly clean bathroom with wellappointed toiletries and was equipped with everything one could wish for, even down to a TV in each room and hot water bottles.
Richard, the owner, could not have been more welcoming and supplied us with an excellent superbly cooked breakfast each morning. He paid special attention to our 2 young grandsons and after breakfast each morning took them to feed the chickens, which they loved.
The brochure describes Penbontbren as a "Luxury Bed & Breakfast", "luxury" it certainly is, being the finest B&B we have stayed in by a long mile.
Our grandsons can't wait to return - and neither can we. A gem of Cardigan Bay.

I have just spent the last 4 nights at Penbontbren and have had the most wonderful time. This is more than a B&B, Richard and Huw have made a centre of excellence for B&B's. Attention to detail is the name of the game, from the great welcome every morning at breakfast and the great breakfast, to the homemade biscuits with a cup of tea in your room. The rooms are fab, everything you could possibly want, in fact more than you would find in many hotels. This really is luxury and the pictures on the website really are what you get. Richard was also great in recommending places to visit and places to eat I can't wait to book again. One of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Oh and the gardens Huw is working on a beautiful too...B&B Heaven!
